Co-Founder, President HG Corp & HG Sports
Beth’s introduction to the value of The Handel Method® was on a phone call with her younger sister, Lauren Zander. She was deeply affected by the rich value of her sister’s coaching. It was the first time that Beth truly understood and recognized the genius of Lauren’s methodologies. Combining Beth’s leadership and initiative with Lauren’s innovative approach and vision the Handel Group® was born.
Beth, assisted by her executive team of Presidents and Managing Partners, has developed Handel Group® into a company that now comprises Corporate Consulting, Private Coaching, Educational, and Product Divisions. Beth is a masterful coach and personally coaches our most senior executive clients as well as leads corporate seminars on a variety of topics. She was also a featured Executive Coach on Businessweek.com where she wrote articles and appeared in educational videos, addressing topics that related to leadership development, organizational integrity and other important corporate issues.
A graduate of New York University, Beth completed her B.F.A. in Theater. At age 21, she became a staff member at one of the largest personal development companies in the country, later taking on expanded full-time roles as senior trainer, corporate manager, and international program leader. In the 15 years she was at that company, Beth led personal development seminars to more than 50,000 people globally. Over the next eight years, Beth honed her craft as a senior management consultant at a California-based consulting firm, working primarily with public companies facing integration challenges. As head of sales, she, along with her team, produced the highest sales ever in the 18 year history of the firm.
Beth has worked with both public and private companies delivering results that included doubling sales, integrating previously “warring” divisions and identifying the obstacles to signing multi-million dollar contracts in short time frames. Her ability to evolve corporate culture and bring about exponential financial growth has become her legacy.
Beth lives in New York with her daughter Max. She is currently enjoying a newfound and unexpected passion: horseback riding.
It’s that time of year: toasts, roasts, floats, and bloat. And truly, what better time than the holidays amongst family (his/hers/yours/theirs), friends, coworkers, and direct reports to accentuate (or exacerbate!) what we actually need to work on (and our teams are begging us to do better?) Okay. Maybe I’m the one that’s begging. As I […]
Are some of the people that report to you less than impressive? Sure, some are great. Rockstars, even. They’re ambitious, consistent, collaborative, result-producers. The CEO loves them and you wish everyone else on your team was like them. Hell, they even remind you of you. You are proud of them. After all, they are your […]
We all have negative traits that come out under certain circumstances at work. Whether it’s when we’re stressed, worried, overwhelmed, or, the new age old favorite, when Mercury is in retrograde. Right? Except, no matter what, no matter how warranted it feels in the moment, our bad behaviors never leave us proud of ourselves. Righteous? […]
